I'm sending a special HE'S GONE out to Rummy today--and not in that nice "Bobby Sands" (Nassau '81) way, just to be clear--but in the "don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out" way.

Advance apologies to any Rumsfeld fans out there.

He was a piece of work for sure.I just continue having a hard time fathoming that in as big a country as this, with intensely smart and or entreprenurial wizards that we end up with a guy like Rummy. He seems like something out of the old Chicago corruption riddles politics from decade ago. Its embarrassing. I'm done, again.

Thanks, Wolf!

Just had to vent....at the risk of bringing politics up on this site, which i know is not always such a great idea.

Peace for all.

I am so tired of seeing images of daughters and sons and wives crying next to their father's/husband's flag draped caskets.
There was a still image on the news last week of a little eight year old girl weeping in agony while standing in front of her daddy's casket. I actually burst into tears and was so overwhelmed with emotion, i almost went on a rant on this forum (decided i need to cool down before going "off.") The little girl looked JUST like my eight year old beautiful daughter. I just cannot imagine..... I am so friggin sick of this "war."

(that image is going to stay with me for a long long time)

I totally understand. I work in the news business and am normally pretty hardened to this kind of stuff, but since this regime has been in power, it's been too much to take.

I started the water works myself watching the "When the Levees Broke" documentary Spike Lee did for HBO. In part b/c I went to school in New Orleans and have a real fondness for that place, but mostly b/c of the pure human misery that was playing out against the backdrop of callousness and cluelessness that passes for "leadership" these days. I'm not saying Democrats have all the answers, or that someone else could have prevented the worst of Katrina, but the response to it was clearly unacceptable in what is supposed to be an era of "compassionate" conservatism.
